air-conditioner-condenser-moneyEfficiency is a concern for most of us, especially during the air conditioning season. An inefficient cooling system will not be able to provide the necessary cooling output for a reasonable price, which is problematic if you live in an area with temperatures already in the high 80°s early in the spring.

You might think that you’re stuck paying the same high bills you do every year—or that you have to shut off your air conditioner altogether to save some money. But we’re here to show you that there are more efficient ways to cool your home.

AC Installation Checklist

Monday, April 14th, 2014

If you’ve decided to have a new AC put in your home this spring, you’ve picked an excellent time for the job. Atlanta, GA air conditioning installation experts have more open schedules during this season, and you’ll have plenty of time to get the new unit up and running before the heavy summer heat starts.

You’ll need to run down a checklist of a few important tasks when it comes to installing an air conditioner to make certain that the work goes smoothly and you end up with the right AC in your home doing the best job possible. Air Conditioning Experts, Inc. can help you every step of the way toward a great AC installation.

Your air conditioning installation checklist:

  • Have you hired experienced, professional HVAC installers? This isn’t work for amateurs or technicians with only a few months of work on their C.V. Make certain that you contact a company with years of experience and a range of services for both heating and cooling. You need an expert eye for every step of the process, not just the actual physical installation.
  • Do you have the right sized AC for your home? “Sizing” an air conditioning unit is a crucial step in installation; this is where you find out how powerful a unit you need to cool down your house without short-cycling or draining power. To find out exactly how much cooling a home requires, installers perform a heat load calculation that pinpoints how a home blocks outside heat and how much heat is generated inside. Trust to professional experience for this work.
  • Will your current ducts work with the new AC? In most cases, your existing ductwork system attached to your previous air conditioner (and furnace if you use one) will work with the new unit. However, sometimes adjustments and new construction are necessary to accommodate a higher efficiency air conditioner. Check with the installers to see what new work might need to be done and how extensive it will be.
  • Should you update your control board and thermostat? These electrical systems run your AC and heater, and new installation for an AC may be an ideal time to upgrade these as well. In some cases, a control panel update is necessary to accommodate increased voltage demands. With high efficiency air conditioners, a new digital thermostat will help you get the best performance from it.

For the most part, you can relax during your air conditioning installation in Atlanta, GA if you have hired on the right professionals for the job. Call Air Conditioning Experts, Inc. today and talk to our team of trained installers to start the process.
